Mike, I thought the same thing with removing one at a time so I won't break the seal and that is how I have proceeded so far.
I have been spraying my manifold bolts for awhile with penetrant.. for snicks I went to try a bit ago to see how hard it would be to get 1 bolt and voila - it popped immediately - now to buy a torque wrench...
for as much as I use one... harbor freight will do..
my bolt - if they all look this good I will just clean them up and call it a day...
